NSFW November: Patti McGuire, Miss November 1976

Playboy’s Miss November 1976, the lovely and talented Patti McGuire, was also Playmate of the Year in 1977, and is famous in the Playboy world for two things; first, for being being to Hef’s right/the viewer’s left on the Playboy Pinball Machine backglass, and second, for being the cover model and centerfold in the issue where Jimmy Carter was interviewed.


It is the only issue in the history of the magazine to feature an interview with a presidential candidate — and of course, after only being on the stands about a week, he won the election. So now it is the only issue with a president interviewed in its pages. In the course of his profile and interview with Robert Scheer, Carter admitted,

“I’ve looked on a lot of women with lust. I’ve committed adultery in my heart many times.”

a remark that has haunted his political career as jeers from the shadows which kind of besmirch all the awesome charity work he and his wife do with Habitat for Humanity. Yes, because he is the only person ever to have windowshopped. I think it is admirable he was open and humble about it. Excuse a dude for being honest.

Patti McGuire had some opinions about fidelity and affairs as well, but they were not quite in the same spirit of confession, self-improvement, and the difficulty of faithful loving as President Carter’s:

In discussing relationships, she admitted that she believed in a “reverse double” standard. She wanted to be free to explore casual affairs, but her man had to be faithful. Could she be more specific?

“Well, have you ever seen the original uncut version of King Kong? When Kong first meets Fay Wray, he peels off her clothes, fondles her and then sniffs his fingers. Later, when he’s climbing the Empire State Building, he reaches through a window and grabs a blonde. He sniffs her and, realizing that she is not his beloved, casually tosses her some 50 stories to her death. That’s my idea of a faithful lover.” (“Missouri Breaker,” Playboy, November 1976)

Patti married tennis star Jimmy Connors in 1978 and they are still together, so apparently he either cured her double standard or overlooks it. They have two children, according to the wiki. No word on if he ever threw anyone off a building for her, but obviously he is doing something right if they’ve been married thirty-one years.

These days, Patti travels and does public appearances with other playmates, and devotes her time to her husband and children. In the above picture, she is at the Chicago Glamourcon in 2009, posing with the famous Pinball Machine. She was recently featured on a site called goodplasticsurgery.com, who pointed out that her face still looks like her own, despite that, given her age, she has probably had light work done. I agree. She’s looking well. I think it’s because she’s lived a good, happy life. What more can any of us ask for!

    Ruin my Life !

    As with most people who appear over night in short stints of fame and even permanent fame they have a history. I can tell you her first husband, boyfriend in high school and college plus nearly 2 years of marriage was shocked when she told him of her employment at a Playboy Club. They had just experienced extreme disappointment from a family member at a time they seemed very happy. He suggested she model and go back to college but not this. The husband was seeking ways to console her not to “cheat on her”. She destroyed his heart forever choosing a “club” over their promised life together. He also went through as many as 5 traumatic events with her prior to marriage assuring her he loved her and would stand by her forever. She forgot he gave up all other girls (100′s of opportunities) in high school and college even a first love of 1 1/2 years just for “her”. The last thing on his mind was loosing his wife to a night club and magazine immediately after family issues. He arranged a love nest for her and college opportunities with no need for her to work, she could have been anything she wanted to be. She chose the avenue she did. Everyone who knew her before the “club”, can’t figure out what happened to the Patti Mcguire they knew.

    Money and that “lifestyle”, does not replace a heart or hearts or 7 years. The truth is coming out in a novel soon. I suggest the public decide on what decisions were normal and which were not! No married man who really loved (love) his wife in those years could have taken these acts and maintained a normal life. Research phschological disstress.

    If your so afraid and ashamed of what you doing to look your husband (7 years) in the eyes and tell him whats wrong, he didn’t deserve the pain.

    How sad. I hope you get over her. She made it clear that she was a slut, albeit, a beautiful one. Perhaps she did change with Jimmy, but it’s tragic that your life was destroyed. Jesus can fix you, I’m sure.

  8. Nini Minor Says:

    I loved you Patty. You are a real Sweetheart! Just saw you tonight on Dancing with the Stars audience, and seeing you brought back fond memories.

    I stopped looking at pin-up girls long ago but Patti McGuire remains my favorite Playboy Pet of all time. I don’t expect anyone to believe me but it wasn’t so much her body I fell for, perfect as it was from head to toe, rather it was that face, and those amazing, mesmerising eyes. I could still look at her face every hour of the day and remain enchanted with her beauty. She takes my breath away. There will never be another Patti, no one else even comes close.

    I’m sorry her first marriage didn’t work out, but these things happen and it doesn’t make you a bad person. The fact she has been married to Jimmy Connors so long suggests she must be a wonderful, loving woman to be around. I believe Ms M, above, who describes her as a bright, funny and kind person. You just need to take one look at her face to see that.

    Thanks to the blogger for this page. I hadn’t seen a picture of this lady for such a long time and it’s been great to see that the dreamgirl I adored in my youth was every bit as lovely as I remembered.
